Any thoughts on disc brakes and less potential for balance compensation? Seems to me that disc's are pre balanced and drums are more questionable. So if balancing is your concern along with safety issues wouldn't starting with disc's and then dynos or centramatics be refinement on the pre balanced disc's? I guess my point is priorities and sequence. So drums and dyna beads or money spent for disc's before centermatics?

Yeah, the guy at centramatic asked me if we were planning to upgrade to disks when we have our axles replaced. Answer: no. THey're better brakes, but the way we drive (slow, lonely state highways), we don't have a lot of need anyway.

Lynn, It only takes one near miss to make them worth while. Kinda like seat belts not important until you need them.

Oh, already had my fill of close calls. Back in the days when we lived in the big city (DFW Metroplex). That's among the many reasons why we left (not realizing, of course, that life in the boonies presents its own, unique challenges).
